I would appreciate any comments left for

my Son, Steven Earl Addison,5337203,
My Mother, Louise Bishop,5337212.
My Dad, Willie H. Bishop, 85261522, -

I have lived in Jacksonville, Florida all of my life even though I was actually born in Macclenny, Florida due to my Grandmother and a Midwife delivering me. Obviously no money for a hospital. Dad and Mom were both only 20 years old -

A lot of events during my lifetime - some good, some bad, some Wonderful and some tragic - just like everyone else. I went to three different schools before College. I married Earl Addison when I was 17 years old right out of HS and had three Children before I was 25 years old. A Daughter and two Sons. We would lose our oldest Son (middle child) when he was only 15 years old due to a motorcycle accident.

I divorced Earl when I was 34 years old and remarried when I was 36. My second Husband, Ray Cochran, and I have been married almost 34 years and we have lived in a house which is now 104 years old since our marriage.

I retired as a Federal Investigator a few years ago after 34 years of service. I loved the job.

Joining this site has helped me in so many ways because I like being able to communicate with people who have gone through the same things I have with regard to our loss of a loved one. It does help.

Currently, I enjoy fairly good health. We have Five Grandchildren and recently became Great-Grandparents to a Beautiful little Girl born in January 2012. God has been Good to Me and my Family. I feel in my Heart that one day (in the blink of an eye) All Families will be together once again.

Rest in God
Thank You
We really appreciate your visit to Danielle's memorial. This is the worst week of our lives and my daughter is devastated in the loss of her best friend. It is so awful to have to say goodbye to such a beautiful young woman who had so much going for her, so much to live for, so much left undone. Still in her 19 years on earth she has touched so many lives with her gentle nature, fun way, honesty, sincerity, kindness, loyalty. She was a wonderful daughter and sister and a true friend. We will miss Danielle to the end of time for she is etched on our hearts. One of those rare special Angels who had to go home way too soon. Thank you for honouring her with your lovely flower.

RE: Ray Family
I am descended from Thomas Ray's older brother, Rufus, who is buried in an unmarked grave at Cat Creek in Lowndes County. My father was Ronald, son of William P., who was the son of Elias Jackson, who was a son of Rufus, who was a son of Hiram, father to both Thomas and Rufus.

I hope that helps and it is always nice to meet another cousin.
